Pioneering the development of dome technology,
the authors have devised an algae dome where the algae are grown between the
walls of two transparent domes, one
inside the other, with only 10 cm between the outer and inner
walls. These domes are inflatable
and are held
up only by air pressure. Circulating water in the 10
cm between the outer and inner dome is the breeding ground for the algae. It
has the advantage of the bioreactors as it is insulated from outside
contaminants but is inexpensive and has more area exposed than the breeding
pond. Further, inside the dome, the floor space of the dome can be a shielded
pond increasing the algae crop
yield or can be used as a greenhouse.
